Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures - in stitch and otherwise! And I hope that you will leave a comment so that I know you have visited.

Back in early December I mentioned here that Cathy of potterjotter blog was giving away some of her handmade buttons.
What a surprise I had just before Christmas to hear that I had won the second set of buttons in her give away! Due to some communication problems I did not receive them until today and it was so exciting opening the heavily padded envelope.
Here is what I found.

A pretty little tissue wrapped package. The tissue has been smoothed and stashed as it is very pretty.

Inside this is what I found

These are my lovely buttons

And Cathy very kindly slipped in this gorgeous little house.

A lovely package to receive - thank you so much Cathy.

The weather has been up and down since we have been back in France but always very mild. Sunny afternoons when I have been able to sit outside and wet blustery days. 

Have been catching up with a few projects which I will tell you about soon.

Have also joined in with  Carli's crazy quilting stitch along for this year. More about that later too.

Meanwhile I hope that 2014 is treating you kindly so far.

Happy stitching
